Kirby Puckett 1989 Fleer
Sometimes Grey works, sometimes it does not.
Sometimes Pinstripes work, sometimes they do not.
For me, both work very well on this 1989 Fleer baseball card of Kirby Puckett!
A great addition to my blossoming collection of cards that honor ‘Puck’!!

Happy Birthday Reginald Martinez Jackson!!!
You may know him as Reggie or as Mr. October or as 1 of the greatest World Series heroes in baseball history. However you know him, Reginald Martinez Jackson turns 65 years old today!!
I unquestionably consider Reggie Jackson as being one of the most dynamic players to ever play the game of professional baseball. On the very short list, I think that Reggie during his prime was one player that was worth the price of admission alone. His persona and ability were head and shoulders above most of his teammates and competitors and when Reggie got the chance to shine, he took full advantage… The result is one of the most impressive careers in baseball for a player playing in a major market city.
Quite simply, Reggie Jackson lived up to the hype he built for himself and not too many players can do that. For his birthday, I would like to give Reggie a hidden microphone and let him coach a high-profile game. Maybe the All-star game. Maybe the ‘Home Run Derby’. Something good but not too serious. Let Reggie have fun, and I am sure that hilarity would ensue…
Happy Birthday ‘Mr. October’!!!

Happy Birthday Brooks Robinson!!!
The man considered to be the greatest defensive third baseman in baseball history turns 74 years old today!!
The resume of Brooks Robinson is more incredible each and every time I take a peek at it. I’ve always known him to be a great defensive ball player, but his offensive and team success during his 23-year career cannot be denied. While Mike Schmidt may be the more explosive, and Chipper Jones may be the better pure hitter of the bunch, Brooks can certainly hold his own in the conversation ranking the best third basemen in baseball history.
Robinson is known for his glove first, and with 16 consecutive years of Gold Glove level performance it is clear to see why. On offense he has collected 2,848 hits, 268 home runs, 1,357 RBI, 1,232 runs scored, and a lifetime average of .267. And the Orioles teams he played for did well too. He is a member of the 1966 and 1970 World Series championship teams.
Happy Birthday Mr. Robinson!!!

Ron Santo ‘Fab Five’ – Card #3 – 1961 Topps ROOKIE CARD
Now that my Ron Santo collection is complete, it is time to show of my favorite five cards from the set.
Card #3 – 1961 Topps.
Ok, so not only is this Ron Santo’s first baseball card issued by Topps, but it happens to be a pretty nice looking card as well.
And while the design is rather uninteresting, there is one graphic element that steals the show. Take a guess…
Yep – that fantastic looking Topps All-Star Rookie trophy! It’s not often that a rookie card displays this kind of logo since a player has to technically be in his second year to have the trophy displayed on his card, but since Santo was not featured in the 1960 set, it works.

Throwing A Baseballs In The Mail Today. Hoping For A Very Special Autograph…
I won’t tell you who. And I won’t give any hints.
But, I will say that if this baseball is returned to me with an autograph of the former player that I am seeking you will be very excited and awed. Trust.
Wish me luck!!!
